The NIT? I Thought We Were Past This?
When John Calipari was announced as the head coach of Kentucky basketball, he spoke of "restoring Kentucky to its rightful place at the top of college basketball". He was, of course, referring to those years when Billy Gillispie was the head coach, and Kentucky had missed the NCAA tournament, and instead competed in the NIT.

I am a die hard UK fan... but I am going to get tired of no "Senior Night" to celebrate a four year player... Experienced Juniors and Seniors are a must if a team is going to be consistently in the final 8 , or even final 4. Sure, there is last year... but this year may be a forecast for the future if the "one and done" philosophy continues. Hard to build a year-after-year loyalty when players are new every year. Not sure what the solution is, but one-and-done takes away the magic.

The players on this team were more concerned with the name on the back of their jersey instead of the name on the front. Go Cats!
